The theme park did not open last summer because of the COVID-19 pandemic. It reopened last Saturday at 18% of normal capacity, which is 3,200 guests.

The hope is that the capacity limit will continue to be eased in upcoming months, allowing more people to enjoy a day of fun at the park.

The rides are sprayed and wiped down after every cycle.
